Another View -- Jayne Millerick: Dems scaring women by misleading them on contraception
We’re seeing that strategy play out right now in New Hampshire. Democrats are spreading myths that a recent Supreme Court decision protecting Americans’ religious freedom threatens women’s ability to access birth control.
First and foremost, women will continue to be able to access the contraceptives of their choice. Although Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has tried to suggest otherwise, the Hobby Lobby decision does not give all employers free rein to “deny coverage for birth control.”
Under Obamacare, businesses with more than 50 employees are required not just to provide health insurance that includes coverage for all standard birth control.
The Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case simply protects Americans who have started businesses, many of whom are also women, from being forced to choose between violating their religious beliefs or being fined by the federal government for failing to comply with a mandate that they believe is morally wrong. Or they can pay a fine to drop health care coverage for their employees altogether.
